In 2003, as part of an effort to acknowledge excellence in the Visual Arts at Hale School, Fine Art @ Hale commenced funding a Year 12 Art Scholarship for a Year 11 student enrolled in ATAR Art. The scholarship amounts to a quarter of the annual tuition for the selected student as they enter their final year at school.
Hale School holds one of the highest enrolments for ATAR Visual Art in the state, and Fine Art @ Hale endeavours to encourage this trend. Recognizing the rigorous protocols and demands involved in studying ATAR Visual Art, it is hoped that the scholarship provides some incentive for students in Year 11 to continue with their art studies into Year 12.
The Fine Art @ Hale Committee also awards an annual Art Prize of $500, recognizing the outstanding work of a selected Year 12 Art Student.
The Art Scholarship and Art Prize recipients are short listed and ultimately selected by the art teaching staff at Hale School, with prizes awarded at the end of year Senior Speech Day.
